Pushover problems this morning

Anyone having Pushover issues today? I can't get any notifications. I went to the web site, logged in, but couldn't go any further. Kept getting page not available. Tried sending test from Pushover site directly, same result.

Trying to figure out if it's me of if they have an issue.

Was on there about 30 mins ago and it seemed to be working fine for me.

Just tested Pushover. It’s working fine here.

Strange. I can't even get to their website now.

Thanks for the responses. I'll wait and see if it clears up later.

No problem accessing www.pushover.net from here. Perhaps there is a regional internet outage in your area preventing access to to certain sites?

Shortly after 7:15AM ET through 7:30AM pushover failed to send messages.

Pushover has reported some DDOS attacks on their servers over the last couple of weeks, I'm guessing the issue you are seeing could be related to that. It does say it's resolved as of 04/16, but perhaps not totally?

Blockquote April 15-16 DDoS Attack

April 16, 2020 by joshua stein

On April 15th at approximately 23:30 CDT, Pushover's API servers came under a DNS amplification Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack which caused them to be unreachable by their IPv4 addresses, though they were still reachable over IPv6.

This attack persisted through the morning of the 16th. At 01:55 we began rerouting traffic for api.pushover.net through a 3rd party DDoS mitigation company and we are once again receiving API requests (IPv4 and IPv6).

Unfortunately at this time, we are unable to receive e-mail notifications through our E-Mail Gateway for legacy USERKEY@api.pushover.net addresses, though our @pomail.net addresses are working.

At no point during this attack were any servers compromised or any data exposed. This was purely a resource exhaustion attack intended to take our service offline.

We are continuing to monitor the attack and are taking steps to mitigate its effect on our service. We will update this post with any further news.

Update 2020-04-16 16:30 CDT : The attack is still persisting, but as we are routing our API and dashboard through our 3rd party DDoS mitigation service, we are continuing to receive notification requests and send them out mostly without incident. We will continue to provide more updates here as needed.
